A VIKING lawn scarifier will ensure that you can enjoy your lawn for years to come. With its fixed metal blades, our scarifier can help give your lawn what it needs: air, light, water and nutrients for dense growth and a rich green colour. Weeds, moss, old clippings and widespread thatch are removed from the grass when scarifying. This is a good way to prevent water-logging and improves the absorption of air and nutrients in the long term.

The VIKING LB 540 scarifier will remove moss, thatch and weeds over the long term. As a result, the ground gets more air and the roots are better supplied with water and nutrients. Powered by a Kohler XT675 Series OHV engine. The depth of the seven individual blades can accurately be adjusted using the control and the machine is easy to manoeuvre via double ball bearing mounted wheels. The foldable handlebar also allows the lawn scarifier to be easily cleaned and stored without taking up much space. A 50 litre volume catcher bag (AFK 050) is available as an accessory.

Why Scarify?

During the autumn, the grass on your lawn goes into a kind of winter hibernation. Just like all plants, this is a way for the grass to protect itself against a possible bleak wintry climate. In the spring, if the temperature increases above 12°, the grass starts growing again.

However, in the meantime, the lawn has been neglected. Residue from mowing, dead grass and roots have formed a spongy layer at the bottom of the lawn surface. This is an ideal breeding ground for fungi and germs. This layer also retains water, so that the soil remains permanently moist, with this slowing down the growth of the grass. However, moist subsoil is also an ideal biotope for moss. This results in moss, weeds and grass all competing with each other in an effort to grow. Under these adverse conditions, a common type of grass such as English rye-grass, will often find itself being oppressed.

Fast-growing weeds and moss will take all of the light away and smother the grass. It is therefore important to intervene at this time. Spraying is a very efficient way of killing the competing weeds and moss. However, the layer of dead moss still remains in the lawn, and this prevents light and air from penetrating to the grass root. Moreover, this also makes the soil more acidic. This layer must therefore be mechanically removed. This is where a scarifying machine comes into action.
